The Insider: an interview with Kate by The Bright Agency

Today’s a bit of a chaotic sort of day in the Crow’s Nest: lots of us have just left for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize, where we have THREE shortlisted titles in the running – Weasels by Elys Dolan, Troll Swap by Leigh Hodgkinson, and The Grunts all at Sea by Philip Ardagh and Axel Scheffler – and the rest of us are busy preparing for tonight’s Christmas party (I am using the opportunity to write this to take a break from hanging fairy lights…), and the unhappy consequence is that the blog has been rather neglected, I am afraid to say.

So today, rather than write anything terribly interesting or witty ourselves, I thought I’d direct you to the excellent blog of the Bright Group, home of illustrators including Benji Davies, Nicola O’Byrne, and Sebastien Braun, which features an in-depth interview with Kate as part of the Insider Series.

You can read the full interview, in which Kate talks about 25 years in the publishing industry, the digital revolution, what she’s looking for in an illustrator, and some of her all-time favourite picture books, here. And normal service will resume here shortly!
